Here are the Announcements from the Bulletin for the 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time:
11am MASS EACH WEDNESDAY
Commencing on Wednesday 9th August, the Shrine Mass each Wednesday will be celebrated at the Old Monastery. As this is a beautifully restored chapel, on the site of the original Monastery, it is felt that there should be more regular usage as well as the Church cleaning is organised for Wednesdays. The main Shrine Church will still be open for visitation.
Thank you to all who cam and assisted with the monthly Shrine working bee. Next working bee: Saturday 16th September. For anyone seeking further information or would like to volunteer please speak to Fr Joseph Maria.
Church cleaning: Next Church cleaning: Wednesday 6th September.
NOVENA TO OUR LADY OF MERCY
We have commenced the Novena to our Lady of Mercy whose Solemnity will be celebrated next Saturday 26th August. During the 11am Mass this coming week the Novena will be prayed for the intentions of all those who have made request or sent in their petitions.
SOLEMNITY OF OUR LADY OF MERCY
The Solemnity of our Lady of Mercy will be celebrated next Saturday 26th August. As a Diocesan Shrine dedicated to Our Lady we also have the privilege of celebrating this great occasion on Sunday, so all the Masses next Sunday will be the extension of the celebration of Our Lady of Mercy, Our Lady of Jasna Gora. During each of the Masses the final prayers of the Novena will be recited after the Creed.
40th ANNIVERSARY OF THE SHRINE
Next year, We will be celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the blessing and opening of the Shrine. There will be a calendar of events coming out by the end of August outlining the various celebrations to mark this great milestone.
